Chicken Hariyali- a different experience to chicken!

Chicken Hariyali is an exclusive experience to enjoy chicken.The green color adds glory to the dish. This dish is popular in Punjab and other parts of Northern India .This is not a regular item of chicken , but tastes yummy when prepared with great care abd expertised hand.

Ingredients: Chicken (250 gms cut into small pieces),onions (grated 2 pcs.), tomatoes(grated 2 pieces), green peas(20 gms, but it's optional) ,cumin powder(2 teaspoons), coriander powder (2 teaspoons), chilli powder ( 1 teaspoon), garam masala powder (1 teaspoon), curd ( battered 50 gms,), ginger garlic paste(1 teaspoon), Palak (about 4 bundles , normal size that is available in the market).

Procedure: Wash palak nicely under water and boil for 10 mins.Drain the water as it is considered to contain the impurities, chemicals , germs that gets contaminated from the market.When cooled down, you can grind in the mixer grinder to get an even paste.Keep it aside.Marinate the chicken with curd, ginger garlic paste for about 30 mins.Heat oil in a container and fry the marinated chicken till it get nicely cooked and soft.For this preparation, the chicken should be boneless and cut into evenly shaped pieces.After the chicken is cooked remove and keep aside. Dash the grated onions and tomatoes in the container and cook till it becomes a paste.Add ginger garlic paste , cumin powder , coriander powder to it till it takes a nice color and consistency.I have added green peas for a better result but that depends on oneself and individual's taste buds whether to add it or not.Add the palak paste to it.Add the battered curd to give it a thick texture and taste.Add the cooked chicken.With the help of a spatula mix the entire content till it gets a uniform green color all over and the chicken mingles with the green paste.Just before removing add garam masala paste to give the ultimate of essence .
The luscious taste of palak along with soft chicken altogether gives a thrilling  taste. This enjoyable meal can be enjoyed with chapati, tandoori roti, naan .This is a very nuritious and delicious treat as it gives you proteinoceous as well as vitaminous values.Anyways chicken cooked along with vitamins gives a wholesome diet.You are sure to give your family the perfect diet.
